What Is AirDrop

AirDrop is an ad-hoc file sharing service available on devices running Mac OS X Lion and later or iOS 7 and later, namely Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod. With AirDrop, you are able to send photos, videos, contacts, websites, documents, and more from one AirDrop-supported device to another wirelessly. For example, you can:

  • AirDrop from iPhone to iPhone
  • AirDrop from iPhone to iPad
  • AirDrop from Mac to iPhone

Besides, since AirDrop requires Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to work, you need to make sure both of the devices are within the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth range. If you are ready, read on to see how to AirDrop from iPhone to iPhone with ease.

How to AirDrop from iPhone to iPhone

It's quite easy to AirDrop from iPhone to iPhone. First of all, you need to enable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirDrop on both of your iPhones. Then, you can AirDrop files from iPhone to iPhone in your iPhone apps.

Bonus Tip: How to Transfer Data from iPhone to iPhone Without AirDrop

Although AirDrop is quite helpful, there are still some drawbacks of using this service. For example, many users have encountered the failure to use AirDrop on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Besides, if you are going to AirDrop contacts, you can only send one item each time. That means it will be quite time-consuming if you are looking to transfer lots of files.

Given that, there should be an alternative choice for you to share files between your iOS devices or between an iOS and a computer. And that is what the iPhone transfer software tool - EaseUS MobiMover can do.

To transfer photos from iPhone to iPhone with this tool:

Step 1. Connect your iPhones to your computer. Run EaseUS MobiMover, then go to > "Pictures" > "Photos". You can also use the data transfer feature to transfer all the photos from iPhone to iPhone X/8/7 at once.
